After this one (thread ) is done if you have any knowlege of this machine would you share it??
I'm glad youenjoy this trivia
I wouldn't say it's the best so far, but it's certainly a good one! If you go back a few months in the trivia forum you'll see a lot of really interesting trivias.
Unfortunately I was too busy for a while (got married and had a baby!) and the forum died....
I'm trying to revive it these days and anyone can post here their own trivia! Please....
OK back to the Russian GP Bike, YES it is Russian!
This effort was the best ever from that side of the world.
'the maximum expression of the Russians in the motorcycle technology' as my source mentions.
Of course I will share my knowledge, the point of this forum is to entertain and learn some motorcycle history!
This bike was a 250km/h GP weapon in the 60s!
